Challenges Faced In A DUI Case

Illinois police officers and courts are strict enforcers of drunk driving charges. The potential impacts of charges and convictions are highly consequential and can wreak havoc on your life, career and family. We will defend your rights and advocate for your case concerning the following:

  • License suspension or revocation
  • Fines and other monetary penalties
  • Jail or prison time
  • Community service
  • Drunk driving school or alcohol treatment
  • DMV surcharges
  • Ignition interlock device
  • Higher auto insurance premiums

These challenges are significant, but we are often able to achieve provisional licenses for our clients and reduce the charges in most cases.

Proper Investigation Of Facts Reveal Defense Opportunities

We are often able to challenge the evidence, witnesses and case of the prosecution in several areas, including:

  • Reasonable suspicion for the initial traffic stop
  • Probable cause for breath test, field sobriety tests, search and arrest
  • Breath test and chemical test refusal
  • Results of tests (legal substances and improper administration of tests may skew results)
  • Witness reliability and motivations

Your legal options are clear when we represent your case. We are straightforward criminal defense counselors working in your best interests from arrest to resolution.

You Need Our Committed, Ironclad Defense

We are no strangers to defending people from Illinois and out-of-state against criminal drug offense charges. We represent clients who have been arrested throughout the Illinois Valley from Bloomington to Joliet.

The sections of state and interstate highways crossing through the Illinois Valley — Peru County and LaSalle County in particular — are home to the second largest area of drug trafficking and drug possession arrests in the U.S.

At Leynaud & Leynaud Attorneys At Law, we believe in due process, the rights of the accused and innocence until proven guilty. Our job is to mitigate the charges against our clients and defend their rights under any circumstances. Our LaSalle, Bureau and Grundy county lawyers have more than 33 years of experience defending people against all matters of criminal charges in county, state and federal courts.

Call us before saying anything to police officers or prosecutors. You have the right to remain silent, and we urge you to use that right unless we are at your side. Call us today at 815-410-4227 for an immediate response, or contact us online to schedule a free initial consultation.
